The University of Alabama-Birmingham has its next athletic director.
UAB announced Friday in a news release that high-ranking Temple athletics administrator Mark Ingram will head the university's recently football-deprived athletic program.
AL.com reports Ingram has deep roots in the south, having both played football and worked at Tennessee. Until his hiring, Ingram had been Temple executive senior associate athletics director.
Ingram replaces Brian Mackin, who stepped down days before UAB announced it was disbanding its football program.
